My art from PAX

Posted 10-01-2008 at 11:08 AM by Bone
I didn't paint on my DS very much at PAX '08, but here are the two things I liked enough to keep.

Jonathan Coulton, of course. I painted this during his awesome set. There is a lack of detail but I feel like I got the gist of JoCo.

I started this one while standing in line to play Left4Dead. I imagined an upper-class zombie getting all dressed up for his portrait before eating the artist's brains. Maybe his name could be Eton Z. Brainsworth the IIIrd. I like the little details like the ripped tie, shredded ear and his rotten half-grin.

At least the zombie doesn't look like Hitler like he did at first.

Thanks Mags! I'm going to try and paint a lot more and make this a regular (at least weekly) thing. Hopefully redirect my career back to art like I originally planned.

Yeah, Rogue, that was really weird. The nose-holes just took forever to get looking right. I finished the tie after I got home from PAX, but I think it pulls the whole suit together

You took that pic right? I'm lazy, can you send me a link to that in your Flickr? Thanks man. I do intend to add the wangasaurus.

Great work. I didn't know that the DS was that capable in the right hands. Not mine of course.

Thanks SPB. I'm constantly trying to improve my skills as well as master the quirks of painting on the DS.

Wait, you can paint on the DS? Thats....thats awsome. I was wondering how you managed to sneak a full set of oils into PAX.

@Scaryfaced: he had to sneak it all in very uncomfortable places, like the back of a Volkswagen.

Like the back of a Volkswagen indeed. Yep, Scary, there is a homebrew application for the DS called "Colors!" that allows you to paint pretty well, a lot like a Wacom tablet. It's my favorite "game" on the DS so far.
